So, what do you do when you have a little bit of taco meat leftover from your meal? Don’t let it go to waste! I created a new meal from my taco meat.
Taco Meat Leftovers: Rice Bake
2 C. rice, cooked
1/2 C. taco filling
1/2 C. kidney beans (or more, depending on your taste)
1/2 C. corn (or more, depending on your taste)
1/2 C. sour cream
Cheddar cheese (use as a topping)
Combine all the ingredients above in a 2-quart casserole. Top with Cheddar cheese and either microwave or put in the oven until heated through. Enjoy!
Other ideas to use leftover taco meat: Use as a pizza topping, mix with re-fried beans to make enchiladas, use in taco salads, use as a potato topper with Cheddar cheese and sour cream, mix with tater tots and top with Cheddar cheese.
These ideas are from my book Instant Bargains: 600+ Ways to Shrink Your Grocery Bills and Eat Well for Less.
